Alise Owens, clinical assistant professor of nursing, and Mo-Kyung Sin, associate professor of nursing, have been accepted to the distinguished Edmond J. Safra Visiting Nurse Faculty Program at the Parkinson’s Foundation (PF).  

“We are thrilled to welcome Alise and Mo-Kyung to the Nurse Faculty Program this September at the Swedish Neuroscience Center in Seattle,” wrote Camila Gadala-Maria, professional education associate at the Parkinson’s Foundation. 

PF Nurse Scholars educate more than 20,000 nursing students on PD annually. With the number of people living with Parkinson’s globally expected to double by 2040 to nearly 13 million, teaching nursing students in the classroom is one of the best ways to prepare them for treating people with Parkinson’s when they graduate. 

The prestigious 40-hour accredited “train the trainer” nurse faculty program improves Parkinson’s disease (PD) nursing care by training faculty leaders across the U.S. to educate nursing students. The rigorous course includes didactics, clinical time with patients, participation in a PD support group and the opportunity to develop an independent project and includes a stipend offered for completing the program.
